Does anyone know why my ankle will lock up and my toes shoot up towards my shin on a daily basis no matter what kind of shoes I have been wearing or whether I have been walking all day or not. Sometimes it happens all day long and the pain is almost unbearable. Thanks.

  • Have u been to doctor yet? From some of the stuff I learned it could have something to do with a neurological condition.

  • I'm hoping you are still online with WD, did you ever get a diagnosis for what was happening to your ankle and toes. Happens to me a lot when I'm lying down and I am baffled as to what it could be.

My foot and toes twist in awful way. I now take Potassium every night. See if that works. I take about 99mg. It will stop the pain and the stiffness of the foot. It took about a week to work. Hope this will help you.

It is painful and I limp around anywhere from 2 to 36 hours. Chiro, physio and dr. don't know wha it is.
